WHAT ARE THE FEATURES OF AN ATTRACTIVE AND YOUNG FACE?
The contours are distinct, the tip of the chin and the line which is from chin to the ears is sharp,
Fullness is towards the cheekbones, cheeks and eye edges,
The skin surface is smooth and taut.
TO WHOM IS FACE LIFT SURGERY APPLIED?
Starting from the points mentioned above, when we examine the aging face, we can say that the clarity of the facial features are reduced, the fullness is displaced downwards and that the skin develops wrinkles. If one or more of these symptoms are present, it might be the time to get the opinion of a plastic surgeon.
The basic target in face lift surgery must be recapturing the harmony rather than stretching the face. Therefore when you are going to meet your plastic surgeon it may be a good idea to bring a younger photo of you.
WHAT CAN BE DONE TOGETHER WITH THE FACE LIFT SURGERY?
Face lift surgery is simply the surgical correction of wrinkles and sagging of the face which are becoming evident in the course of time. However, it should never be considered alone; it can be combined with any other methods, if necessary. Such methods include;
Mid face lift
HOW IS FACE LIFT SURGERY MADE?
Depending on the fact that skin loses its elasticity with ageing, skin wrinkles and subcutaneous sagging occur due to loss of elasticity and volume of the tissue under the skin. In its treatment, the processes of hanging the sagging subcutaneous tissues to their proper places and removing the excessive skins are performed. The skin tissue is lifted by entering through the incisions in front of and behind the ear. The stretching process is performed on the lower tissues. The excessive skin which occurs after this process of stretching of the skin is absorbed and stitched to the areas in front of and behind the ears.
Thanks to the advances in plastic surgery in the recent years, new techniques have been developed leaving less scars, with shorter operation periods and as a consequence, those in which more rapid recovery and more sustainable results are achieved. Thanks to these developments, face lift surgery operations appear as more desirable operations that can also be applied at relatively earlier ages at the present day.
HOW IS THE HEALING PROCESS AFTER THE FACE LIFT SURGERY?
The average operation time is 2 hours in a face lift surgery. You can be discharged and go home after 4-5 hours after the surgery. There will be swelling and bruises for 3-4 days after the surgery. After this period, you can return to your normal work and social life.
FACE LIFTING METHODS WITHOUT SURGERY
Classical face lift surgery is a technique that can take you 10 – 15 years maybe further back. However, in cases when skin sagging occurs less at the earlier ages, the question of what are the ways to keep our skin young and fresh as a requirement of the modern age comes to the mind.
The basic objective in these non-surgical techniques is to mobilize the elastin and collagen fibers. These methods are;
Heat energy (Thermage)
are the methods of replacing
the volume which is reduced by means of;
Fillers (Hyaluronic acid)
Methods can be considered such as ultrasonic energy (Ulthera).
methods that support the subcutaneous cells and enhance the content of them are applications such as;
Mezolifting – Vitamin injections
